In the second half, East Goscote came out firing with a point to prove and equalised a minute into the second half thanks to a brilliant flick into the goal from Rosie.

The Vixens took the lead for the first time in the 45th minute after a spectacular long shot from Teagan troubled the Rugby goalkeeper and found the back of the net.

On the hour mark, the constant pressure from East Goscote proved too much for Rugby when Teagan fired a venomous strike in the top corner to secure a 3-1 win against a resilient Rugby Borough side.

With Leicester City Women defender Sophie Howard on hand to assist with the trophy presentation, The Vixens clinched a thrilling victory in the Howes Percival Under 13 Girls County Cup. Now, they're determined to carry this winning momentum forward as they aim to secure the U13 Yellow league title.

East Goscote manager Darren Foster said: “This team never ceases to amaze me with their ability and commitment, and I am so proud of each and every one of them.”
